Physics I Honors
This is an introductory course that seeks to give a survey of all areas within physics and lay down a strong foundation for further study in many other STEM fields as well as lead into an AP level course. Most of the course will focus on classical mechanics (kinematics, Newton’s Laws, energy, work, power, rotation), but will also cover fluids, thermodynamics, vibrations, wave phenomena, optics, electromagnetism, relativity, and quantum mechanics. A strong background in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry is expected. Other math topics will be covered as needed throughout the course.
